NASA Sharing Underwater Training Facility with Petroleum Industry

Astronauts and oil field workers will share a training facility at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston thanks to a new agreement that takes advantage of excess capacity at the agency's underwater training pool. In a Tuesday, Nov. 15, ceremony at the facility, Raytheon Technical Services Co. of Dulles, Va., NASA's contractor for operations at the Sonny Carter Training Facility Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory (NBL) near Johnson, signed an agreement to partner with Petrofac Training Services in Houston. Petrofac will use the NBL to provide survival training for offshore oil and gas workers, and NASA will continue training International Space Station crews there for space walks. The partnership will efficiently use NBL resources while combining the expertise and capability of Raytheon and Petrofac to create a center of excellence for survival training.
